# 300: Christianity: The Road To Divine Love

When God’s love is given to an individual, it is made up of spiritual matter, but when the party receives the love with the correct physical response that activates it, a physical love transaction will be initiated.

To be loved by Almighty God is the needed force that gives us the desire and ability to love others as they need/desire to be loved. When one is experiencing being loved by God and truly knows it, that person is one of the wealthiest—though not materially—people in the world.

Question: How do we know when we are experiencing God’s love? Answer: When He allows us to share in His holy life. Then we become one with Him because of our love attachment. John 17:22 (Jesus speaking): “I have given them the glory that you have given me, that they may be one as we are one.” Like most human love affairs, we attempt to please each other in all we do. To put it another way, when we desire to live our lives in obedience to all that He (the Father and Jesus Christ) teaches in the New Testament (NT) with the correct motives, that is the main evidence that we are experiencing Almighty God’s love.

Another piece of evidence is that God’s love is impartial; He does not love me any more than the next person. If and when I can love in the same way, I will treat the next person the same way as I would like to be treated. Philippians 2-5. “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.”

Once we know with certainty that we are experiencing the love God/Christ has for us, then it is our solemn duty to display our love for Him. And this is how we do it: John 14:23. “Jesus replied, ‘If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching.’” There are a total of five verses in chapters 14 and15 in the book of John that associate love for Christ/God and obedience. It could not be stressed any more as to its importance. And yet, love for God is downplayed to the point of using only words and songs of love alone to substantiate love for God by mainstream Christianity.

Therefore, when we start to experience the love God has for us, we will be completely satisfied without desiring any of the physical comforts, relationships and perks that this evil world offers. A people living in God’s superhuman love will be completely content even if sentenced to solitary confinement in a pagan country for the rest of their lives just for being Christians.

This Divine love is, in a way, the same love that abounds in heaven. When people are indwelled with God’s agape love, that love makes us superhuman, in that our human desires are no longer in control of how we live. Let me put it this way: A person cannot be living in God’s love and not know it; in fact, no one can be doing the work of Christ without this miraculous love.

There are a few verses in the NT that are extremely contrary and unnatural to the desires of our sinful human nature; they are those that command us to love those who are our enemies. There are several verses that command that principle; I will give only four: Matthew 5:44. “But I tell you: love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.” This verse implies that God has love for all His enemies, but His love for unbelievers is the type in that He DESIRES all of them to be saved. 1st Timothy 2:4. “This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth.” Luke 6:35. “But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back.” Romans 12:20. “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink . . .”

What will God accomplish when we obey these verses that command us to love our enemies? The potential is great, and if we were to continue to actively love our enemies, they might be amazed and curious to know what type of force is behind our supernatural (divine) love for our enemies. That means that love for our enemies is one of God’s recruiting tools to entice His ungodly enemies into His kingdom.

God’s love for the world as it is manifested through our lives is the most important ingredient in the Christian religion, and it could be the most neglected component in mainstream Christianity. This seems to say, “America’s (our) religion has the smell of death.”

The reason being loved by God and loving others is so important is because, believe it or not, love is the most potent medicine in existence. Those who are enjoying God’s love will/are experiencing almost all kinds of healings: spiritual, emotional, physical, mental (stressed lifestyles) and any and all other types of corrections our frail bodies may need. There is a saying that “Laughter is the best medicine.” That may be partially true, but continually experiencing God’s love is a much more effective and lasting medicine.

Repeating: God loves all people, even His evil enemies (anyone who doesn’t live according to His teaching in the NT), but His love for those who are obedient to all His commands generates the miracle part of Christianity: eternal life.

There are only two classes of people in the world: those who obey the teachings in the New Testament—displayed by the way they live—and those who don’t. Those who don’t will be rejected because of their lack of love, faith and obedience. This is the absolute truth even if religious people don’t want to hear it!

The main, if not the only, way we can display our love for God is our loyalty in obeying His teachings and commands which are in the New Testament.

It is worth repeating what is said in the first paragraph: Love always starts out as spiritual matter, and when it is followed by a corresponding action, it becomes of physical value.

If and when someone has something that is priceless that could help everyone in the world, could/would she/he keep it to him/herself? I am referring to people who are silent about their religion, concerning the great love that God has for humanity (His plan of Salvation). Example: When someone says they love God but produces no corresponding action, that love from/for God is worthless to self and God.

The miracle about Divine love is that it does not concern how self will make out when propagating Godly love, but our concern is only the spiritual or physical benefits to the potential recipient/s.

There are two forms of love in the world: The biggest portion of humanity are the have-nots—those who are not aware of others’ need for love, and their own need for love, physical or spiritual; and the haves: those who wholeheartedly desire to share their Divine love with others; again, either physical or spiritual. Where do we stand?

God is love; therefore, He created us in His image. The greatest gift other than eternal life that He gave us is the ability to love. This tells me that He desires us to love with the same type of love that He has.

All genuine Christians are in the “haves” group. Therefore we have no excuse not to love where and when it is needed. Remember, love—mostly Divine love—is the most important and valuable ingredient in the universe, and not wealth, fame, power or security.

Another great thing about experiencing God’s love is that it will always put our human love in its proper place.

The best thing about being loved is that it makes us feel important, needed and valuable. The lack of genuine love most certainly is the reason there is so much hatred and trouble in the world. We all want to be loved, but most don’t really care to love others because it may be expensive and time-consuming to love as is dictated in the NT.

Therefore, when God through the NT commands us to love Him with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and love our neighbor as ourselves, He is giving us a full-time job; nothing else is needed; love covers it all. And as repeated dozens of times, the only way to do that enormous job is to have an active desire to be obedient to all that is commanded in the NT. Nothing less will do. The tough part of this job of loving God and neighbor with our all is that it most often will go against the desires of our selfish human nature.

In conclusion, the God who created the world for a very specific purpose of spreading Himself (His love nature) throughout the universe is a God that is made up of only one ingredient: LOVE. When any religion displays that selfless Divine love, be it Christianity or any close facsimile, that love is what true religion is all about.

In Christianity, Jesus Christ displayed that love and made it possible for all genuine Christians to continue living and loving as He did as it is taught in the NT. That means any and all religions without that special enlightening/transforming love are anemic forms of religion.
